ICF International Launches Defense Advisory Board
Distinguished Board to Advise Firm on Defense Issues
Fairfax, Virginia, June 8, 2009 -
In April 2009, ICF International’s (NASDAQ:ICFI) Defense Advisory Board (DAB) held its inaugural meeting in Washington, DC. ICF formed the DAB to obtain the executive-level perspective of former defense leaders on strategy, issues, ideas, and business opportunities related to the defense market and to create new relationships with current Department of Defense (DoD) leadership and its stakeholders.
With defense as one of the firm’s top three business sectors, ICF realizes the importance of attaining sound advice on defense-related issues from leaders in the field. To ensure this occurs, ICF sought and secured five esteemed retired DoD officials who represent a wide range of military services and defense capabilities. DAB members include Gen. John Handy and Lt. Gen. David McIlvoy, U.S. Air Force; Vice Adm. Gerald Hoewing, U.S. Navy; and Lt. Gen. Henry Glisson and Sgt. Maj. of the Army Jack Tilley, U.S. Army. The DAB is chaired by Walt Kozak, corporate vice president and DoD account executive.
The DAB will provide ICF leadership with insights and advice on the defense sector’s most pressing challenges, especially in areas where ICF demonstrates thought leadership and core competencies. The board will also help ICF deepen its commitment to the support of military families and wounded warriors.
The DAB reflects ICF’s strong commitment to our defense clients and our investment in the DoD sector,” stated Sudhakar Kesavan, ICF chairman and CEO. “The board will help us leverage our strengths in human capital, energy, and environmental management, and apply knowledge gained through our long-standing work in defense logistics, to enhance our services to the DoD and defense markets.”
“The DAB’s input will help us better identify and focus on opportunities where we can serve our defense clients with firsthand knowledge and direct involvement of DAB members on key projects,” said Kozak.
